US name for a UK product

Group:
Is there anyone that knows of a US available equivalent to the UK available Jeyes Bin Powder (i.e. a powder that neutralizes trash can smells).
Cheers

Kaolin granules or plain clay-based cat litter works pretty well. I don't know of an equivalent, though. At our house we just freeze and bag stuff that will spoil, like chicken/fish/beef bones and scrap, then toss them the day of garbage pickup. This does the job, with no smells, without all the unnecessary chemical load being added to landfills. It also keeps raccoons and other animals away from rotting garbage.

I have seen the products, but I don't recall bin powder. However I will guess it is a baking soda product.

As Joseph Meehan suggests, you can just use baking soda rather than a special-packaged product. Predictably, it's one of the tips on the Arm & Hammer site:

For anyone looking to provide an answer, the product in question is a disinfectant, not just an odor masker, and the full name is Jeyes Freshbin. Oddly enough the maker says that it is suitable for use in kennels and stables as well as in the rubbish bin but warns that it must not be used in catteries or where cats might come into contact with it. I don't understand that bit at all.

Probably for the same reason that most flea powder is made differently, depending upon whether it is made for a cat or a dog. Cats clean themselves by licking, thereby possibly ingesting greater amounts of toxic substances than a dog or horse, neither of which care about cleanliness.
